Please note we do not `re-write' an urgent private / hospital prescription to an NHS prescription. You must take this to the pharmacy as usual.
Hospital prescriptions should be taken to the hospital pharmacy for dispensing. We will not reissue such prescriptions from the surgery and will only add repeat prescriptions to your file on receipt of a letter from your consultant.
Prescriptions from hospitals should be consistent with the pharmaceutical prescribing policy of NHS Barnet and if they are not they may be converted to a prescription that is consistent. The same applies to private prescriptions.
We will not issue prescriptions that are outside the licensed use - sometimes called on a `named patient basis'. If this is recommended by a consultant / third party they should prescribe it for you. There are also some drugs that are outside our clinical experience that we never prescribe and usually there are special arrangements for obtaining these from hospital.
Use of patient data:
Our practice is collaborating with NHSBSA (NHS Business Services Authority) which is providing NHS numbers for those patients that may be suitable for electronic repeat dispending prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHS BSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
From 1 April 2009, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. The charge for a single prescription item is £7.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £28.25 and a 12 month PPC £108.10.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 72 hours (3 working days), excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
